DL380 BBWC enabler

I orderd a battery-backed write cache enable for the dl380g3 (255514-b21). This part number is straight from the HP ordering book. It was shipped with instructions for the dl360.

Does it work with both? If so, does anyone know where the installation guide might be?

Dan:

Here is a link to the DL380G3 maintenance guide: http://h200001.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00065010/c00065010.pdf

Look on page 42.

To put it into plane text... you will lift the black plastic bracket out of the side of the drive bays (next to the power and health LED's) and snap on, "carefully", the battery. Now, down along side of the server (you may have to life out the fan assembly to get at the cable) is a small shrink wrapped power cable that leads back to the 5i controller board. All you need from the BBWCE box is the battery; everything else is in the DL380 server. Connect the cable to the battery and you are done.
You will likely need to charge the batteries and such once it is installed... the server boot messages will tell you.

I hope this helps! -john
